    Sweet! This will be a double whammy with your Kimball book Amid!

    • Amid Amidi

      Yea, it’s looking like Chronicle will be putting both out around the same time! They’re very different books—bio vs. instructional—but I think they’ll complement each other nicely.

        I’m really excited about your book Amid! It’s great that Chronicle has dedicated itself to putting out such nice books about the animated artform. Thank you for all your advice, and helping me through this process.
